Abstract
Background: After disaster happened, the number of ARI (Acute Respiratory Infections) cases could dramatically increase and even ranked top. The public health center (Puskesmas) in Wani is the public health facility that has the highest number of child ARI patients in Donggala Regency after the disaster happened. The public health center handled 149 ARI cases from the total of 1,597 cases occurred. This study was aimed to find out the knowledge and behavior of mothers, facilities, health services, health worker and family support for mothers that the children suffered from ARI at the working area of Wani public health center. Methods: This study is a qualitative research using case study approach. The data were collected through in-depth interviews with 12 informants who were selected through purposive sampling technique. Results: The results of the research showed that mothers’ knowledgeable on ARI was still low due to the lack of information. Their behavior related to ARI management was good that was showed by their decision to take immediate medical treatment for their children by buying them drugs and taking them to health facilities. However, there were also mothers decided to give their children self-medication (traditional) that was performed at home by buying self-prescribed medication or even using traditional medicines. The health facilities are adequate to be utilized by the mothers. However, the role of health worker has not been maximized because of the lack of information related to ARI. Some informants got social support from their families in the form of information and emotional supports, but there were also some informants who did not get adequate support from their families. Conclusion. The low level of mothers’ knowledge and lack of social support from health workers influenced the mother’s behavior in treating of ARI on children at Wani Public Health Center.
